Personal Statement: Everyone that I meet has a story to be told and heard. To me, the opportunity to build a meaningful relationship with individuals and hear them tell their story is the very best job I can think of. Every person I meet has a past, a present, and a future. Although our past is a part of us, the present and what we do with our past is what defines us in the present and in the future. It is my job to hear and understand your story, and to help you build the skills you need to have the future you want.
